CPI-M leaders visit Nandigram

November 27, 2007 19:06 IST

For the first time in the last eleven months, West Bengal Communist Party of India-Marxist leaders on Tuesday visited Nandigram [Images] and alleged that a 'false' propaganda has been launched against the party that it was unleashing violence to recapture the area.

"A false propaganda has been launched against the CPI-M that it is unleashing violence  while our own partymen faced atrocities from Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (backed by Trinamool Congress) who were joined by Maoists," Shyamal Chakraborty, a CPI-M central committee member, said after visiting Hazrakata and Osmanchak.

He also charged that Maoists were active in Nandigram and targeting CPI-M supporters.

Chakraborty, former transport minister, said they will submit a memorandum to the district magistrate of East Midnapore on 'atrocities' on CPI-M supporters by BUPC supporters and Maoists in Nandigram.

The CPI-M team comprising Chakraborty, Md Selim, and Shyamali Gupta, president of the party's state women wing, stopped at Hazrakata, Rajaramchak, Osmanchak, Garchakraberia and Sonachura among other places in Nandigram.

They were greeted with slogans by partymen who narrated the 'atrocities' of the BUPC.
